Re: [SCA-JML] Poetry, was Eurocentrism in the SCA,
- I'll get there. I'd just like to read a lot more first, then one day the words will come of their own accord.
I almost jumped in on the poetry game last week, started by Date-dono in honor of my silly giggling fan-poking gaijin nanbanji with
ADD ways. I was honored into behaving well. The trend of the poetry at first seemed to be in autumn, then winter, and I was
inspired by the thought of the first butterfly of spring carrying a lover's breath. Almost wrote it, but thought it would be way
too forward of a newbie.
As it was, the poem seemed to take on the harmonic voices of lonely lovers unsure of each other's regard. That the minds of people
on this list, separated by so much distance, yet united by e-mail, produced such loveliness, touched my heart enough to bring mist
to my eyes.

I try to save mine. They get added my web page. Due to intellectual
property issues, I haven't collected those of others on my website
and would not dream of doing so without express written consent from
the writers. (Which is why I was looking for Date, Jeannette and
Otagiri the other day....)
The other option is to take a very leisurely stroll through the
archives. I do mean leisurely - most of the poetry posts are embedded
in something else and won't be readily identifiable.
As for learning how to write 'em, just do it. Don't worry if you have
to do syllable counts on your fingers. I've been doing it ever since
I started. ;-> Be warned though, waka are like Lay's Potato Chips,
you'll find you can't stop at just one. Right, Date-dono?
